I found this really useful "how to" guide on the Rabbits Against Magic website:

It goes through all the steps of how the Rabbits Against Magic comics are made and gives some useful tips on how to produce a high quality finish comic strip.

"I recently moved to Maputo, Mozambique with my girlfriend... The story of how I decided to move here and how things changed enough in my life to dare to take such a huge step is pretty long. But, hey! I´m making a comic about it! :) Here you can see the three basic stages of how I´m working on this book. Thumbnails: Where I basically write the whole thing with lots of tiny notes, changes and ideas, a penciled page about to be inked and the folder where I keep the finished pages... It´s slowly growing." - taken from

William George Wright
William George Wright was a comic artist for Disney, who drew many of the 'Mickey Mouse' stories. Wright got his education at the Los Angeles Art Center and the Los Angeles Technical Trade Institute. He joined the Disney Studios in 1937. A year later, he was assigned by the Comic Strip Department to assist Ted Thwaites on inking Floyd Gottfredson's 'Mickey Mouse' stories.Thwaites left Disney in 1940 and for years Wright was one of the main inkers on the daily and Sunday 'Mickey Mouse' pages. From 1943 he also started to do pencilling on the Mickey Sunday pages. Bill Wright continued working for Disney until his death in 1984, drawing daily pages with such characters as 'Scamp', 'Brer Rabbit' and of course 'Mickey Mouse'.

These last 2 cute strips I found on the internet and can't find out who made them!
